Pacific railroad and dered twenty-seven out of nine inhabitants The two Mexicans who made good their escape were nearly exhausted when they reached the railroad and had their horses shot from under them before getting out of reach of the Indians From the scanty news obtainable on account of a break in telegraphic it pears that Apaches completely surrounded the village thus making escape for the doomed inhabitants impossible The track of the Indians through the wilderness is continually marked with murder and bloodshed and the justly indignant citizens of this section of the country demand that the government put a large force of troops in the field immediately and wipe entirely out of existence the red devils who are committing such ble slaughter and atrocities among the whites and

feel more hopeful now than last night Morphine was again administered to the dent last night before he could sleep and while he had not recovered from he last operation as the surgeons hoped they still insist that he will rally and will Executive Mansion p The president's condition remains the same as when reported at a slight rise in temperature by the usual after- noon fever The febrile rise ever is said to be no greater than heretofore The patient has been nauseated once since the last bulletin sent The surgeons refer to the bulletin as about ng the case up to this hour with the exception of the return of the nausea mentioned and show no sition to talk further on the subject The evening bulletin is anxiously waited for by the public At the ex- mansion there is a perceptible eeling of anxiety about the patient no actual alarm exists but on he contrary the present unfavorable are considered but and it is thought they will soon pass away Executive mansion p of the

the whole is less His pulse is now 130 99.6 respiration 22 Drs Bliss Barnes Woodward jurn and Agnew still keep close to he president and avoid giving any outside but there is ealing the fact that the president is worse and that he is in much danger The general feeling iere is one of great despondency are pressing to the white for the latest news and the connected with the case have little hope Dr Garnett and lent surgeons fear the worst result lopes ar- still felt that the president may get better to-night Executive Mansion p it this hour information obtained rom the attending surgeons is to the fleet that while indications are that be president's wound is doing very well and is apparently not the cause f present trouble The fact ot be concealed that the patient is weak and that his y is such aa to causi anxiety It has een determined not to disturb his tomach by permitting him to eat for le present and nourishment is being administered by means of injection The surgeons explain the by the assertion that the stomach has failed so as it should Hence the determina tion to inject nourishment There i a decided feeling of anxiety among the members of the cabinet and at tending surgeons and at this writing the situation is at least grave Noth ing has been heard from the sick room during the lost hour and the officers are now in waiting to hear th latest news Attorney-General MacVeagh said in response to a question We havi heard nothing since the bulletin was issued Of course we are very anxious We expect to hear some thing very The following cablegram was sen at this Lowell The

who came from the private part of the mansion says Mrs informed him that the president was still sleeping quietly p Brown who just came from the geon's room says the president is still sleeping He said the sleep was natural and that no morphia had been administered to-day The ment heretofore made to that effect is erroneous The patient's pulse has decreased ten beats being at present about 120 No further trouble from nausea has been experienced The surgeons estimate his temperature at this hour to be about nominal In- are that the pulse is still subsiding There has been the greatest ment here to-day about the president since the day he was shot Business was almost entirely suspended and people were running everywhere hunting for the latest news The white was rilled up and throngs pressed about the gates The ment was started with the forenoon bulletin which was considered The midday bulletin in- stead of reassuring the people in- creased the uneasiness and the night bulletin made matters still worse Everybody wanted to find out what the surgeons thought of the ease and what hopes they had but this was rather difficult as the geons kept themselves out of sight This added to he alarm and at night the whole population was on the streets going their homes and the white house The surgeons remained close by the president and the offices at the white louse were thronged but little could se learned that could be called nite Those who had access to the hear the president and to the would say but little Col Corbin said that the situation was Attorney General Veagh told Senator Pugh of Alabama it was useless to disguise he fact that the ease was as grave as could be Doggett of Brooklyn who has access to the personal attendants of he president said it was as bad as >ad could be All this seemed to in- crease the feeling of alarm but gave no satisfaction as to the state of the case It was plain all day that the surgeons were alarmed There was no concealing that fact Various were afloat and could be icard at every turn To-night about 9 o'clock a Western Associated press agent got to see Dr He said he was in a hurry to et back to the president but would time to say that this was a most critical turn of the president's mal- ady He said it was a complication hat was not looked for last night He The president's stomach went back on him and entirely re- used to perform any of its functions The surgeons became alarmed as they saw it was a critical change wound was doing all right There was no trouble from that as yet It s discharging freely all the pus that s secreted The whole trouble is with he stomach The president has been a sufferer with dyspepsia for several years All know that and therefore ve handled the stomach gently We administered just such as could best be assimilated At first you re- member we gave liquid nourishment and followed it with solids as the grew better His stomach forked well enough up to last night when it gave way suddenly This auses the president trouble His will not retain anything lot even a spoonful of water He has UD every thing iven him to-day The president now must have nourishment For a ime after he was shot it was not so ssential He had fat enough then to him Now that he is ex- lansted and must be kept up with the waste goes 011 all tie time The question now is can keep up the Can you do it asked the eporter We can for a while There is no of that but whether we can and sustain the president by enema until his stomach tes the all important question Doctor do you consider the case not by any means The a chance to get a ver fair chance His stomach may gaii strength soon and then there be no trouble Doctor asked the reporter does a patient sometimes grow so weak thai the fever exhausts Not until dissolution sets in and that is not the case with the dent and if the stomach resumes its functions he will mend right along There is no other trouble At 10 o'clock there was an crowd at the white house and the grounds were crowded Everybody was seeking news but the surgeons were still inaccessible An Associated Press agent sent note to Dr Bliss asking if there was any news since the interview with him He wrote the following note in The president is sleeping without anodyne Pulse less by ten beats since the evening bulletins ture not above 99.6 respiration 20 Altogether he was in a more ing condition than at 6 Has not vomited since D W The president was given early in the evening a wineglass full of hot water This io relieve his stomach at once and it was followed soon by three teaspoonfuls of milk which his stomach retained After taking it he went to sleep and was sleeping when Dr Bliss note was written He slept until when he waked up and was sponged off and went to sleep again This greatly en- Dr Bliss although it bly indicated a relief of the stomach that might prove of incalculable The white house was closed at midnight and though the doctors re- mained near the president they felt much more hopeful Vice President Arthur and Secretary Blaine were advised by telegraph to-night of president's serious condition At midnight everything looked more hopeful though still serious There is a hope and belief that the president may be better Executive Mansion p m Although there has been a feeling of anxiety at the executive mansion day no alarm was felt regarding the president's condition until late this evening The fact that none of the surgeons have entered the business apartments of the mansion luring the day occasioned ble suspicion the evening letins proved was warranted Since the bulletin was issued there been constant arrivals of anxious inquiries at the white house The room of Private Secretary Brown has been crowded all evening Among those first to arrive were General James arid General Shortly came Assistant Secretary of State Hitt Secretary Windom and Secretaries Sorkwood and Hunt Second ant Postmaster General Elmer First
